Hi This is my first time travelling to Fiji in August 2012. I'm actually going for my friend's wedding and staying over for about 11nights in Nadi. Planning to maybe visit one of the islands and snorkelling and bit of shopping etc. Can anyone help with my queries below?

1. how much money I would realistically need to take with me?( My hotel by the way is not all inclusive).

2. Should I exchange my GBP before I leave the UK & if so to what currency? If so anyone know the best place to exchange?

3. Should I take travellers cheques?

Oh I do not possess a visa card but hold a visa debit, can that be used as visa? pros and cons please?

Thank you be grateful if anyone can help me?

Fiji dollars are the accepted currency in Fiji. YOu can change you GBP at any bank in Fiji. ANZ and Westpac or at any money exchange. Check the exchange rate at home before you travel. Also check with your bank as to the charges related to withdrawing from your debit card while in Fiji, sometimes these can be expensive. Some banks now offer a debit card which you can load with the currency of your choice before you travel so you avoid the ATM charges. Budget about F$100 a day for food plus drinks. . I would load up the debit card you have and charge as much as possible to your room so you only get hit with one transaction fee. Trips etc it is up to you if you get cash or use your debit card to pay. If you intend to stay at an island resort check the rates before you leave so you have an idea of what it will cost. Then you can change the GBP to Fiji dollars either in UK or Fiji.
